• Magic Carpets
    • From 2017 till 2021 the New Theatre Institute of Latvia together with 14 other organisations from Kaunas, Berlin, Folkestone, Rome, Prague, Bucharest, Limerick, Tbilisi, Porto, Zagreb, Novi Sad, Innsbruck, Lviv  and Nantes was a partner in a new EU platform Magic Carpets supported by Creative Europe. The goal of Magic Carpets was to foster the development and mobility of emerging artists by providing residency opportunities. The emerging artists in residencies had the chance to collaborate with local communities and artists and to work in the field of socially engaged and responsible art creating new multi-discipline artworks related to current issues of global nomadism, displacement and encountering otherness.
  • ACT: Art, Climate, Transition
    • ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localised possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act. ACT is a project initiated by 10 cultural operators from 10 European countries, working in the field of performing and visual arts. ACT is a project with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. ACT emerges from the cultural operators of the preceding Imagine2020 project. This European project evolved around raising awareness on the climate crisis, and presenting the arts as a strong designer of possible futures. Social awareness and citizen action on these issues recently saw an enormous increase in intensity and spread. ACT maintains our focus on arts, ecology and climate change, but we connect this to the interlinked issues of inequality, climate justice and urban ecologies. Finding ourselves in the Anthropocene era, we seek to include the agency and voicing of the non-human and other voices. Partners: Lokomativa (Skopje), Bunker (Ljubljana), Domino (Zagreb), Culturgest (Lisbon), Kaaitheater (Brussels), Artsadmin (London), Coal (Paris), New Theatre Institute (Riga), Theater Rotterdam, Kampnagel (Hamburg).
